Grain-free: is it a step too far?

Increasing numbers of people are adopting a grain-free lifestyle.   The Paleolithic diet (Paleo/ caveman/ stone age) is promoted by many as the diet that has given them the most health benefit. The idea is to replicate the diet eaten by our ancestors, before the dawn of the agriculture era, over 10,000 years ago.  The claim is that after millions of years of evolution on this diet, our bodies are still best adapted to these foods.

Serious flaw in Joint BSPGHAN and Coeliac UK Guidelines

It is my opinion that gastroenterology groups who developed diagnostic guidelines for celiac disease have forgotten that they are dealing with very real people who have significant illness.   They seem to have forgotten about the suffering of the children, the anguish of their parents, and the potential serious health implications of late diagnosis.  This is a serious flaw.  I believe that attention should be focussed on early diagnosis, not … [Read more...]

Celiac disease language – please change it

Off gluten a person with celiac disease is "No longer diseased!" Celiac disease language - please change it I have been thinking about what I say to my patients. As you know, I see a lot of children and their parents who have celiac disease. However, when these people have been on a strict gluten-free diet, their celiac disease should have got completely better, and therefore they should not be called "diseased" any longer. So when I see … [Read more...]
